Shoba Sivaprasad Wadhia, the founder/director of Penn State’s Center for Immigrants’ Rights, has written a blog expressing her approval of the new immigration policy, calling the announcement made by Obama “a rare combination of good politics and good policy.” Wadhia goes on to say that transparency is necessary when it comes to deferred action. There should be a well-defined process for those who wish to apply for deferred action. Transparency will ultimately lead to consistency in outcomes. Wadhia also suggests that written decisions should be given to those who are denied deferred action.
